completed by: Timothy Lanzi

mentors: Torsten Rahn, René Küttner, Dennis Nienhüser

In this task

the stars plugin has been extended to display constellation lines. So far it only contains the big dipper, Cassiopeia and Ursa Minor.

This task requires some basic star gazer / astronomy knowledge.

This task is about adding

  • Orion ("the hunter", german: "Orion")
  • Taurus (german: "Stier")
  • Canis Maior (german: "Gr. Hund")
  • Canis Minor (german: "Kl. Hund")

Important: please use the constellation lines from this Url as a reference.
